I went on a cruise on the Corrib Princess on Tuesday 13th August with a small family group. The crew were welcoming and accommodating and all in all it was a pleasant experience . The commentary was informative but maybe a bit too detailed. I enjoyed the trip but I have one small gripe I object to paying €2-20 for... More

The trip on the boat was organised for my Niece's Hen. As it had been pre-booked there was reserved seating for us. The staff were very friendly and it was a great introduction to Galway and the in-laws to be. We were treated to a demonstration of how to make irish coffee which was great to watch and very informative.... More

Had booked a hen for a trip on the Corrib princess. Was not disappointed with entertainment or service. With complimentary glass of champagne for all in hen party and free for the Bride (of grps over 10), it is ideal to start of the party and celebrations. Weather not an issue as a table is reserved for the party. As... More

Nice, enjoyable cruise along Clifden and the coast of Galway. They were hosting 2 hen-parties on the day we went for the cruise, so the boat was jam-packed. There was some commentary running in the background I think, couldn't hear it as it was too noisy. Towards the end of the trip, Roisin. a staff member demonstrates how to make... More

I have been on the corrib princess a few times. We went on a lovely sunny day and it was beautiful. Lovely surrounds and the staff on board were very kind and helpful. A woman called Roisin is the female champion of the world for making the best irish coffee and she does a little a demonstration onboard. Everyone enjoyed... More

I highly recommend taking this river cruise if you are in the Galway area. The stretch of river that cruise down is really scenic. It's also very good value for money considering that the cruise lasts for 90 minutes. The audio guide points out and explains all the points of interest that you pass on the river and this was...

As boat cruises go, this was just OK at best. It was a hot day, the boat was slow and allowed for no breeze. The information seemed interesting enough for what is was, but it was difficult to hear because our cruise had to be given in both english and french. Every time the english was playing, it was impossible... More

I'm not a lover of lakes or rivers but this cruise was most enjoyable. The crew were great. The captain spoke ad lib and was very informative. There is a full bar on the boat which even served Irish coffees. Another crew member got some people up to do an Irish dance- talk about rock the boat! Best of all... More

After landing in Dublin and driving to Galway, we thought The Corrib Princess River Cruise would be a nice way to kick back and relax, and we were not disappointed! We had an informative cruise up river and a relaxing cruise back down the river. Highlights included a demonstration on how to make an Irish coffee using their award winning... More
